Abstract:
What is the role of government in creating a sustainable and fair food system? How does the work of policy makers relate to that of agencies and non-governmental organizations? This panel discussion will explore the roles that various entities play in governing Michigan's food system. Panelists will highlight successes, touch on how they work together, discuss where and why there are gaps, and explain how governance can promote food access, environmental sustainability, and the financial viability of food production, processing, and distribution.
